I don't know if their criteria is fair or not, they never tell me their
criteria. I know that if a spamcop subscriber turns in a message as spam
from my server, and they list me, and the message body looks something like,
I hope I got your email address right, your handwriting is hard to read
with my cataracts. Grandpa passed this morning, your Mom will call you
when you get out of class. I hate to make you miss finals so please

Then there is a problem with their criteria for certain.
